Of Early Days as Recalled by
Fierce spirit of the glass and seythe
Can stay him in his silent course, or
His iron heart with pity?
-Geo. D. Prentice.
Before Austin had a name or a location, quite a settlement had sprung up in Nevada in the neighborhood of Six Mile Grove. This was on the old West Union road and the bulk of emigrants that came into the state from the south travelled this road and passed by the Nevada settlement.
